Artist Statement

What does a man need in order to be happy.

Progression is retrogression and retrogression becomes progression.

My painting is, I think, completely different because it is vegetative painting.

One reason why other people do not want to paint vegetatively or want to take to a vegetative way of life is because it begins too unpretentiously, it does not have great eclat or drum roll; on the contrary it grows quite slowly and simply, and that does not appeal to our social order, people want instant results based on the slash and burn principle.

I should like, and I do it too quite instinctively, to live an example, live an example to people, paint for them a paradise that each may have, he need only grasp it.

Paradise is there, but we destroy it.

I want to show how basically simple it is to have paradise on earth.
